Comments about Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS Swirl Electric Guitar:

Just picked up one of these. Is standard MIM Strat with the cool paint job. Great guitar, great quality that I would expect from Fender. I was told they only made 150 of these, not sure if they will make more or not. each guitar is unique. Sounds like a strat, plays like a strat, overall strat mojo! :)

      Comments about Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS Swirl Electric Guitar:

      I was really excited about this as I buy guitars that appeal to me visually. Every picture I saw was exciting. The "completely unique" swirl I got was a lump of blue with what appeared to be spilled gray paint running down the guitar. There was no "swirl" to this at all. I am amazed that the quality control people let this one go. I realize not every one of these can be a masterpiece, but this was a dog. Couldn't really care less how it sounds, it looks too awful to play. I have never returned a guitar, but this one's going back.

      Comments about Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS Swirl Electric Guitar:

      I bought this from the great staff of MF. I jamb hard but I also collect cool limited editions and that's what this one is. I did some research and am sure this will become collectable. Yes its MIM but so was the splatter painted version from a few years back and I can't find any!!! As far as quality it plays and sounds like any other MIM Strat. Mine has a few dimples in the body finish but man does it look cool! Get one before their gone.

          Comments about Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS Swirl Electric Guitar:

          I was very surprised with how well this guitar sounded. I have played a Squier Stratocaster for 15+ years, and have had several other brands/models in that time frame. This guitar is versatile having a tone that allows me to play anything from slow and melodic, to fast and grungy. Very happy with the purchase and think that I will be sticking with Strats in the future,

          The color of mine was a lot different than the one I saw, it still looks sweet, but it'd look better if it was the one pictured.
